Who doesn’t love the spring season? There’s a fresh smell in the air and blooming flowers and fauna all around us. Not to forget, spring blesses us with the suitable temperature to grow a bounty of fresh, natural produce.
Growing awareness about the benefits of plant-based diets has led many to incorporate vegetables as a part of their regular meals. Apart from health reasons, a large number of people prefer vegan dishes to promote sustainable eating habits. Here are some tasty vegan-friendly dishes for you to try out this spring season:
Creamy Vegan Pasta
The ultimate comfort food, pasta, is a favorite of many. It’s a dish you can keep having and has the potential to fill you up. We’ve compiled a creamy vegan pasta recipe for all vegetable and pasta lovers. The best part is that this recipe is low-fat as well as easy to make.
You’ll need olive oil, low-fat/soy milk, whole wheat flour, garlic powder, coriander leaves, mint leaves, broccoli, whole-wheat pasta, carrots, and some salt and pepper to taste. Start by boiling your pasta in hot water; add carrots and broccoli to the broth a few minutes before the pasta is done. Next, work on the sauce by mixing the flour, milk, and oil to create a creamy sauce. Pour the sauce into the pasta, mix well, and sprinkle with mint leaves to serve this mouth-watering dish.
Spinach, Chive, and Broccoli Soup
Nothing says spring like some cold and tangy vegetable soup. This dish is perfect for an appetizer meal or a snack to fill you up with.
You’ll need some oil, sweet potatoes, unsweetened butter, spinach leaves, olives, chopped anchovies, low-fat Greek yogurt, bread crumbs, heavy cream, and ice cubes.
Start by adding the spinach leaves, chives, olives, ice-cubes, and some water in a blender and blend until you see a thick consistency. Sieve this sauce and add some yogurt to it. Next, beat the cream and add it to the mixture. Store this soup in the fridge and leave it to chill. Take out the soup and garnish it with some bread crumbs and chopped chives.
